If an addition alone does not comply with the Standards, improvements to the existing building may be necessary, and the "Existing + Addition + Alteration" method must be used. In this case, existing Walls/Windows/Doors dimensions will be required, and project square footage will be the sum of the existing house + addition area.

A.
- don't worry, we will inform you which improvements can help and will work with you until building COMPLIES - free of charge!
